Former Rangers midfielder Kevin Thomson has revealed he held talks with new Ibrox boss Pedro Caixinha about the vacant No.3 position.


1.) 02 Apr 2017 21:48:22
Who agrees john mcginn from hibs would be a fine player for us in midfield?

2.) 02 Apr 2017 23:21:13
Not me he's a cart horse

3.) 02 Apr 2017 23:39:01
Mcginn is overrated. Just gives away cheap fouls and can't pick a pass. Not been impressed when I've seen him

4.) 03 Apr 2017 09:54:47
We need to be significantly improving the quality of players at Ibrox not bringing in more of the same. We should be setting out our stall with the permanent signing of Hyndman and we should build our team round him.

Money needs to be found to support the manager in the transfer market and if King can't provide it then he needs to find someone that can!

With a bit of luck we wouldn't need too many new faces. Fodderingham is a good keeper, Tav a good attacking right back but we need at least one centre back and we need a hard man defender at left back rather than Wallace unless he, (like Tavernier), can improve the defensive side of his game. We could be lucky in midfield if Rossiter can get fit and stay fit, we sign Hyndman and Krancjar and Crooks can do a job. Windass could be a decent player as well but we need a Terry Hurlock, Graham Roberts type as well. Up front, we need a striker and a winger and personally I would look to offload McKay. We need consistency, not someone that plays one good game in five!

With the funds I am sure that Pedro can bring in some quality from South America and his god son and Weiss from his old team in the Middle East. Right now there are some very good players in the Mexican league that is quickly establishing itself as one of the best worldwide.

5.) 03 Apr 2017 10:54:40
The weekend result/ performance just tells us all that it makes no difference who the manager is the players are just rank rotten. As for Barrie McKay, we are effectively playing with 10 players every week so long as he's in the team. If we could get any money for him then good riddance.

6.) 03 Apr 2017 11:56:17
McGinn is a smashing player, however I have heard huge Celtic family and we can not compete if they are in for him.

I would prefer Pedro does his own thing and doesn't sheep it like other managers who have came to the old firm.

7.) 03 Apr 2017 14:21:16
Only problem with bringing in South Americans is the work permits. Can someone please tell me the rules regarding this?

8.) 03 Apr 2017 14:26:58
Tom, can't see why anyone would ever want to keep Windass, Crooks, Kranjcar or even rossiter and get rid of wallace and mackay. Nico is past it. a terrible signing and Crooks and Windass were never Gers quality. they are what they are.

English lower league players. Rossiter looks a player but is always going to be injury prone. as for the rest of them, there's not many i'd keep. probs Tav, Fods, Waldo, Mackay hopefully Hyndman, Miller and Waggy. Not much else. maybe Holt, but that's about it.

9.) 03 Apr 2017 14:36:47
No chance of McGinn ever playing for us.

10.) 03 Apr 2017 16:17:29
if i was to sign players from scotland, i'd sign hayes and rooney from the sheep and maybe that walker and prince boy from hearts the rest would be a no no especially a championship player as we saw how well this team did down there so it doesn't speak volumes for the class of a player having a good season with hibs in the lower league

Huddersfield Town have placed head of football operations Stuart Webber on garden leave amid reports linking him with the Rangers director of football position.


1.) 30 Mar 2017 13:21:18
Apparently wants the Norwich job. Ssn

2.) 31 Mar 2017 11:17:34
As son as Warbs, DW and Frank McP done the dirty, I signed Webber on FM17. Just saying



13 Feb 2017 10:58:51
Article in todays Scotsman newspaper "Rangers could look to Huddersfield Town's Stuart Webber as the Ibrox club plans for life after Mark Warburton. " His role is reported to be Director of Football.


1.) 13 Feb 2017 12:10:09
Huddersfield doing very well in the championship, someones obviously doing something well down there

2.) 13 Feb 2017 12:55:35
Aye all fair and well at a wee team we are Glasgow rangers we had one guy from a wee English team that couldn't hack it here we need to go for it now frank de boer or Souness

3.) 13 Feb 2017 12:57:56
I work with Derek McCiness cousin and he's talking with Rangers Right now

4.) 13 Feb 2017 13:06:45
Is DM's cousin also his agent?

5.) 13 Feb 2017 13:41:55
As if he would want that confidential info out there right now!

6.) 13 Feb 2017 14:31:57
Absolute rubbish he's under contract to the sheep we would need their permission to speak to him. Plus we would need to pay them compo.
Another I work for mackenzies at the airport and. . story

7.) 13 Feb 2017 14:58:28
**** sake guys just saying what I've heard his cousin spoke to him and said he was having talks unlike some of the absolute drivel on here that's just fantasy! Talks don't mean he's signing its just talks!

8.) 13 Feb 2017 18:41:50
I watch Blackburn Rovers although Rangers are my only team and watch every match from home, this season i had the pleasure to see Huddersfield when they visited Ewood and they are far the best team to play here, not surprised they are riding high in the league, as far as someone coming to Rangers i would not count on it they are a club very much on the up and would be surprised to see them in the E. P. L.

9.) 13 Feb 2017 21:51:33
I told you weeks ago that Warburton had lost the confidence of the chairman and was going. The same source, a family friend of King and season ticket holder, says deal is all but done with Mcleish and Alex Rae

10.) 13 Feb 2017 23:03:01
Ive watched Huddersfield a few times this year and their style of play is a joy to watch. whether our players are good enough to carry it off is another thing

11.) 14 Feb 2017 00:57:27
No offence buddy, but he isn't in talks with rangers, I think It will be big Eck till the summer

12.) 14 Feb 2017 06:25:59
MacLeish has definitely got the job his assistant is Alec Rae be confirmed today or Wednesday



03 Feb 2017 15:33:27
another website not only has MW and DW been held to account at board level but also FMcP. and I quote.

"In fact, director of football Frank McParland is also understood to have been questioned of late for some of the signings he's made on a big budget with meeting and cross-examination reportedly held at last week's board meeting. "



1.) 03 Feb 2017 17:07:30
Good god people finally noticin Warburton's clueless should been gone after cup final defeat and specially 3loses to Celtic, I would luv David moyes in he would and is capable going toe to toe wiv Rodgers plus experience and no nonsence and he was gers fan growin up

2.) 03 Feb 2017 18:08:03
The fact he's done nothing since leaving everton and playing for celtic don't see that happening mate.

3.) 03 Feb 2017 20:47:32
Moyes has achieved very little since he left Everton.

4.) 03 Feb 2017 22:23:16
He's achieved being sacked twice and now he's Sunderland manager that are in a dog fight to avoid relegation u would trust him with money have u seen his Sunderland signing at least when warbs went for lescot he was thin.

5.) 03 Feb 2017 23:42:32
On the bright side of Moyes comes he will probably bring lescott with him 😂😂😂

6.) 04 Feb 2017 20:13:59
Moyes achieved very little at Everton as well!

Talking to fellow bears this morning and the feel good factor is definitely back, happy days.




17 Jun 2017 16:08:57
John Hartson believes Pedro should have gone for quality over quantity in his bid to rebuild Rangers. He believes we should have spent £10 million on three quality players. Pedro should be congratulated for casting his net wide. We are bringing in a higher caliber of player and attempting to ship out the dross that MW signed. It may not happen overnight and pretty sure we will have our hiccups along the way but rather than give credit they print negative articles. Celtic are still better but not invincible so let's see if the gap has closed when the season starts.


1.) 17 Jun 2017 16:36:46
How do you know they are still better, we haven't seen the team play yet?

2.) 17 Jun 2017 17:09:38
Neither has fat man harts on though, we need to give them time before praising or knocking them. What I will say is they seem better quality of player but for me it's whether they settle or not. If Morelos keeps that goalscoring record up he could be our dembele.

3.) 17 Jun 2017 18:14:12
Right, Hartson, you buy three quality players and stick them in with those mingers we currently employ? You don't think they'd notice after a game or two what they're playing alongside and what calibre of numptie they're expected to carry every week? And that's a plan, is it?

4.) 17 Jun 2017 19:08:45
guy doesn't have a clue ignore him lol says this about us then moves on saying how good Hayes is a good signing for them personally if i was a celtic fan i would be expecting a champions league type of player not Hayes especially when there meant to have funny money

5.) 17 Jun 2017 19:12:14
Jo Dodoo will be our Dembelle, play the boy and he will score a barrowload.

6.) 17 Jun 2017 19:22:12
Who cares what guys like Hartson think?! Why bother? Guy is entitled to his opinion like everyone else, doesn't make him right, doesn't make me interested just ignore them guys. Even if you think they have an agenda, treat their opinions with the distain it deserves. Ignore!

7.) 17 Jun 2017 20:59:52
Fd, I think its more likely that Morelos will be our 'Dembele'. Bought for 1m but if he bangs the goals in I could see that at least multiplied by 5.

8.) 17 Jun 2017 21:31:27
Hartson also said signing £1million players basically was not going to be good enough it's a gamble but then goes on to say Jonny Hayes who went for similar amount is a fantastic signing great player what a joke so biased it's unbelievable.

9.) 17 Jun 2017 21:48:17
We all know harston has had a bee in his bonnit since we knocked him back due to that medical. He said then he felt as though he was treated like a dog and years later he said it time and time again on record to all the rags. As he stands in regards to impartial football punditry is as obvious as it is blatant.

10.) 18 Jun 2017 00:20:07
my aunts brother in law worked with stuart hillis in the royal and said hartson never got signed because his medical was that strict he said something like this is a bit much am not crippled and David Murray took offence and blocked it
dint know if its true so don't slaughter me



13 Jun 2017 09:50:29
Pedro is signing mainly foreigners but could that also be down to Scottish clubs reluctance to sell to Rangers. No real progress was made on the two Motherwell players and Hibs refusal to sell Scott Allan is well documented. Ryan Jack from Aberdeen signed on a freedom of contract.


1.) 13 Jun 2017 11:12:24
We were linked to everyone as the press were clutching at straws if you think the boys from motherwell were Pedro's first choice over alves, cardboard, herrera and Morelos you are crazy I'm glad we are signing forgien as the standard of spfl player is cack

2.) 13 Jun 2017 11:51:02
Well said Gary 75 spot on



09 Jun 2017 09:43:01
Do we have any pre-season friendlies lined up. The new players will need time to gel.


1.) 09 Jun 2017 09:57:14
I'm sure we're involved in a tournament down south, can't remember the team but it's a lower league team hosting it but with big team's competing. I can't see nothing about it again, but here's hoping that it's still on.

2.) 09 Jun 2017 11:27:09
Don't think there's any preseason friendlies because of Euro ties and the tourney down at Nuneaton will be the development squad that's playing in that



05 Jun 2017 16:15:38
quote from Newsnow Rangers regarding our Mexican signings. According to both Excelsior and Univision in Mexico, the moves to Rangers are now in doubt as neither of the player's have played in 75% of their national team's games over the past two years, which, they believe, is a requirement by the Scottish FA before handing out the work permit.

Excelsior say both players now have to wait a few days to see if there's any way to get around that requirement, and Univision state that could happen if Rangers convince a panel of former footballers that Peña and Eduardo Herrera will 'contribute to the growth of Scottish football'.


1.) 05 Jun 2017 16:33:08
Old news mate. That's all we are waiting on regarding Carlos Pena, Panel are meant to be making the decision next week.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 16:36:28
Just seen that article on NewNow, that's a bit concerning but I'm find it hard to fathom how these deals would have practicly got this far with at least a high degree of confidence that they would go ahead.

Although if we have got to sit in front of a biased SFA panel then I really do fear for those deals.

And make us look 👀 like idiots bringing these Mexican lads to Glasgow for medicals and signing talks, with both Pena and Herrera getting there pic taken everywhere.

I'm hoping that that article was not correct. Or at least I hope 🤞 so.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 16:36:52
Home Office issues work permits, not the SFA

4.) 05 Jun 2017 17:00:37
From what I have heard they boys have work permits, but need permission from the SFA to play in the league.

5.) 05 Jun 2017 17:19:24
Good old SFA!

6.) 05 Jun 2017 18:11:14
The 3 man SFA panel have to agree that the players will be a benefit to the league. Then they make a recomendation to the Home Office for work permits. Nothing new here and has been widely reported since we showed interest in them. Rangers new this going into the deals.

Copied from Wikipedia. Candeias was released by Porto in June 2010, signing shortly after with fellow league side C. D. Nacional. He was immediately loaned to Portimonense SC, appearing regularly as a starter but suffering top flight relegation.

On 3 July 2014, Candeias signed for Portuguese champions S. L. Benfica, promising to "give everything" for the club. He failed to appear in any competitive games, however, being successively loaned to 1. FC Nürnberg in Germany, Granada CF in Spain, FC Metz in France and Alanyaspor in Turkey

Who PC can bring in will decide who stays and who leaves. At present the team falls way short of even a mediocre Rangers team, more quality is required throughout the team. If we can get our money back on Garner and MOH that would be a start. It will be about who we can lure to Ibrox but we will need quantity as well as quality if half the team is to leave.

Beerman was getting mentioned in glowing terms but this will be a baptism of fire. Bates is at last getting a game, I wish the both of them well and would like to think they are capable of making the grade.

As it is a rumours Stewartyblue then it is worth a punt, with Arab billionaires and Red Bull sponsorship we will have that much money we will not know who to buy first, Messi or Ronaldo, uch let's buy both. We live in hope.

The supporters are turning up in large numbers at the games both home and away. This hysteria regarding Pedro's situation is being generated by the media who are throwing petrol on the flames. The truth is that we are not as close to challenging for honours as we would like to be but changing the manager every year only leads to chaos. Like you say Trueger stay behind the team and things will change.

James2016 I agree with all you say. It was important we won the three points and start to build momentum. Our keeper was too busy today for my liking and we gave away to many cheap free kicks. let's get Herrera more involved, he could develop a cult status under the right conditions.

Fintytint you are doing Goram an injustice, yes he would have been under pressure with that defense but class players always make a difference. Like I said, in six games he was outstanding, could be described as "good at his job" but in the rest of the games he was mediocre.
